How do you organize your ideas? My Thoughts
Lots of ideas, so little time
I am not sure if you are like me, but I constantly have ideas for my business that I want to work on - may it be the low content publishing site, a blog post idea, a series that I would like to work on, courses that will happen - well, you get the idea.
There are times, however, that the constant flow of ideas can give me a little bit of anxiety, to be honest. Not because I am not working on them, I am, but I am afraid that I will forget the ideas that I am having, and more importantly, forget how and where I have organized the ideas that I do have for the future.
How do I deal with that anxiety and overwhelm?
I have a few steps that I take in order to keep up with everything, with is what I want to share with you. Focusing on a structured (or semi-structured) system helps to control overwhelm, so I recommend that you focus on creating them for all of the aspects of your work and business (or even for your personal life, when needed)
Well that is a work in progress, but here is what I have come up with so far
- I have one place where all of my ideas go - for me that is Notion, so everything gets dumped in there
- I tag them - I have a master tag list, so for example, if I want to work in a journal about gratitude, I will tag it as journal, and gratitude
- I revisit the idea and notes fault regularly - well okay, semi-regularly, because you know life stuff
- I have a work journal - yes, another journal, where whenever an idea strikes I can write it on that day's page, and organize it in the evening before I am closing up my work stuff - at least that is the plan, sometimes I work so late though, that I can not get around to it until the next day, but then it has to be done first thing in the morning!
How do you keep track of your ideas? Do you have any tips and tricks and you think we all could benefit from? If so, please leave them in the comment section!
